Future wireless networks are expected to realize the vision of ubiquitous connectivity for a massive number of devices (50 billions devices by 2020, estimated by Cisco) anywhere and any time. Such networks, often referred to as 5G, provide an underlying platform for emerging applications like smart e-healthcare, traffic safety, smart environment, virtual reality aided systems, etc… with very-high data rate (e.g., peak at 10 Gbps), ultra-low latency (e.g., less than 1 ms), and much higher energy/power efficiency (e.g., battery lasts for several years). This talk, from a realistic perspective, gives an overview of key technologies and novel network architectures that enable 5G systems. As examples, we then present our recent findings and ongoing works in in-band full-duplex communications, spectrum sharing, network economics, fog computing, and IoT. The talk also provides training and collaboration opportunities for academic staffs, graduate and senior undergraduate students with scholarship and funding from various sources (e.g., the University of Technology Sydney, Australian government)..

Eryk-DutkiewiczProfessor Eryk Dutkiewicz obtained his Bachelor of Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Adelaide, Australia in 1988, his Master of Science in Applied Mathematics from the University of Adelaide, Australia in 1992 and his PhD (Telecommunications) from the University of Wollongong, Australia in 1996. From 1999 to 2004 he worked at Motorola Laboratories in Sydney where he managed a wireless research laboratory. During that time he was also deeply involved in the development of the popular WiFi technology. Since returning to academia in 2004 he has worked closely with industry partners including Motorola, Freescale, and Intel on projects involving wireless sensor networks, 4G and 5G mobile communications networks and medical wireless body area networks. He is currently the Head of School of Computing and Communications at the University of Technology Sydney in Australia. Prof. Dutkiewicz has held visiting professorial appointments at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, City University of Hong Kong and Coventry University in the UK. He is an author of over 200 research papers and several book chapters. His professional activities in recent years included participation on various International Steering Committees. He is the General Chair of IEEE VTC 2017-Spring in Sydney.

Dr Diep N. Nguyen is a faculty member of the School of Computing and Communications, University of Technology Sydney (UTS). He received Ph.D, M.E degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering, and B.Sc. in Electronics and Telecoms from The University of Arizona (UA, 20013), University of California, San Diego (UCSD, 2008) and Posts and Telecom Institute of Technology (PTiT, 2004), respectively. Before joining UTS, he was a DECRA Research Fellow at Macquarie University, a member of technical staff at Broadcom (California), ARCON Corporation (Boston), consulting the Federal Administration of Aviation on turning detection of UAVs and aircraft, US Air Force on anti-jamming, a Postdoc scientist at University of Arizona. He has received several awards from LG Electronics, University of California in San Diego, The University of Arizona, US National Science Foundation, Australian Research Council, including nominations for the outstanding graduate student (2012), outstanding RA (2013) awards, the best paper award finalist at the WiOpt conference (2014), discovery early career researcher award (DECRA, 2015). His recent research interests are in the areas of computer networking, wireless communications with emphasis on systems’ performance and security/privacy.
